Like waking a hibernating bear, waking a dormant stomach causes violent growls that can only be silenced by sandwiches and 20 minutes of gentle patting. Ward off vicious appetites with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of sub sandwiches, deli fare, and shakes at Hansen's Dairy and Deli in Green Bay and De Pere.
Hansen's Dairy and Deli's skilled subsmiths slice up 22 different submarine sandwiches alongside an extensive selection of hot sides and family dinners. Customers create intimate culinary companions as they familiarize themselves with the many layers of a turkey-and-bacon sandwich ($6.39) or the beef, mushrooms, onions, and green peppers that play leading roles in the philly cheesesteak ($6.79). Diners can wander through the vegetable forests of a Garden deluxe pizza ($4.79–$10.29) or pair an eight-piece bucket of chicken ($13.49) with mashed potatoes and gravy ($2.09). Icy items, such as malts and shakes ($4.39), mark upper lips with a thick milk-shake mustache that patrons can wear proudly at a supervening garden soiree or legal proceeding.

Backed by 100 years of deli experience, Hansen’s Dairy and Deli keeps loyal regulars nibbling year-round. Like a Norman Rockwell painting with a side of ketchup, the bill of fare is an edible piece of Americana, regaling taste buds with creamy milk shakes, crispy thin-crust pizzas, and savory fried-chicken dinners. The deli’s crew also crafts more than 20 different hot and cold sandwiches, stacking bread with everything from turkey and bacon to philly steak and perch.
At both the Green Bay and De Pere locations, an old-fashioned charm washes over visitors. The uniformed staff greets each guest with a friendly smile, and shiny display cases keep a colorful array of ice creams chilled to perfection.
